I am very excited to announce that Sophabulous Steps will be teaming up with Ben Miller to put on a DANCE EVENT in aid of Highland Hospice on Saturday 15th June in Fort Augustus Village Hall.
The Highland Hospice is an extremely important local charity. They provide support for the physical, psychological and social needs of adults suffering incurable, life limiting diseases across the Highlands. The hands on care they provide, heavily relies on the support of donations.
In the effort of fundraising for this important and indispensable charity, Sophabulous Steps is hosting an afternoon of step-dance with Sophie Stephenson accompanied by Ben Miller on Border pipes. The afternoon will comprise a demonstration of Scottish Step-Dance along with workshops for all ages and levels of experience. Whether you are new to step-dance and are giving it a go for the first time or have experience in step-dance or other dance forms, this event encourages everyone to come along, join in, and get involved in raising money for this worthy cause.
Dance Workshops, Saturday 15th June 2013
2pm-2.30pm: Age 5-10
2.30pm-3.15pm: Age 10-15
3.30-4.30: Adults (age 16+)
Step Dance is a fun, active and social activity for all ages. Accompanied by a LIVE MUSICIAN, the workshops will give people the opportunity to actively engage with our traditional music and learn percussive style dance steps to strathspeys, jigs and reels. For wee ones, it helps them to learn rhythm and improve their co-ordination whilst, for adults, it is a gentle way to improve stamina and strengthen muscles. The workshops will be an introduction to step-dance for people who have never tried it before, and also welcome intermediate to advanced level step-dancers.
Advised to wear hard soled shoes and bring a bottle of water!
